Just before the Judge is about to send Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason back to the Bad Place for eternity for collectively failing the tests she gave them, Michael, with Janet by his side, makes his way through the portal to the Judge's chamber, he who pleads their case by poking holes in the process which determines who goes where in the afterlife. The Judge is at least willing to listen to Michael. If Michael is able to come up with a solution, the four humans, led by Eleanor, want to go through whatever process and be sent to whatever place as a group. What Michael is eventually able to convince the Judge to do in the interim, unheard of within her tenure, still does not answer the question of where the four will eventually land in their eternity, Michael who places his faith in the four and what they have gone through since they first arrived in the neighborhood.

Chidi Anagonye: We all have a voice in our head. That voice doesn't tell us what to do or not do, but it does warn us when we do things that don't feel good or right.

User Reviews!

I'm writing this review to give this show the credit it so DESERVES! (And also to balance out the negativity.) The writing is superb and is some of the best for a comedy that I've seen. All through season 1, I was semi- invested and thought the show was cute, until, of course, the finale which made me flip out! Season 2 continues that trend, as it heads in a direction that no one would expect, and take the viewer to some places that they hoped for, and a whole lot of places that they didn't. The character development in this season is well thought out and each character grows exponentially, to the point where I often say..."oh my goodness. Look what a person they've become." As for this episode, it is one of the strongest of all of them. Plots are further developed, and a big (not huge) twist is out into play, which wonderfully sets up an arc for its third season. I truly love this show (and this episode) and believe it will get its recognition in due time.
